Comments Harriet Beecher Stowe

  1. Not an easy read It was very long, dense, slow read but I discovered that I was drawn to her life and determination to accomplish so much at a time when women had no voice Connecticut born Harriet Beecher Stowe 1811 1896 was one of the first women to make a living from her writing despite maintaining her domestic duties Her big seller, Uncle Tom s Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly, was the best selling novel of the 19th century selling 3,000 copies the first year, 1852 Her book is credited with hel [...]


  2. A solid biography that does a fine job of setting Harriet Beecher Stowe s life and work in context It left me wanting to read of Stowe s work selectively, mind you Hedrick s commentary gives a good indication of which of Stowe s books are still worth a look and which are not , about the times, and about various of the fascinating people who figured in her life in particular, a couple of her siblings, and a number of the writers with whom she was associated.



  3. This Pulitzer Prize winning book is a must have for anyone interested in the Civil War, nineteenth century literature, women s rights, the lifestyle of settling the Western frontier, the influence of the British Aristocracy on American popular culture, and it could very easily be titled How Harriet Works h t to James Wood Harriet Beecher Stowe s life before and after writing Uncle Tom s Cabin was rich and intense, full of great pain and great joy, and Hedrick captures it in factual storytelling [...]


  4. In her advice to troubled and grieving women, Stowe s efforts were repeatedly focused on removing from their shoulders the added burden of feeling that they should not feel the way they did, a burden that was largely the result of Calvinist preaching by male ministers The things I said to you in parting, she wrote to Martha Wetherill, I said hoping perhaps they might have at least some influence in relieving your good heart of a burden which our dear father never meant us to carry the awful burd [...]


  5. An intellectual and literary biography of Harriet Beecher Stowe written by an academic for academics This book is not for the general reader, unless you want to learn everything about Harriet Beecher Stowe, her family, and the 19th century feminist movement It is too long, too detailed too many long excerpts from letters and sources , has too much historical analysis and not enough storytelling The author goes off on many tangents and should have stuck closer to Stowe I slogged through this book [...]


  6. I read this when I was younger, and I loved it very much The story was inspiring and reminded me of Little House on the Prairie and Caddie Woodlawn Also, reading about Harriet Beecher taught me how one book one story one person can have on the world Her book, Uncle Tom s Cabin, was one of the tipping points for the Civil War.
